When: Sat., Jan. 23 2016
The fourth installment of Pretension Gallery’s Insider Trading series takes place from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. today in Slavic Village. This year, more than 40 artists will swap work during this one night only event. None of the works on the walls are for sale. Instead, the artists each draw a name of another artist and everyone leaves with a different piece than they came with. If an artist draws their own name, they get to “steal” any piece in the show. It’s the art community’s version of White Elephant, but you won’t find anything else like this in town. This year’s theme is “The Unconscious Mind.” The event includes a raffle for the general public, refreshments and live music from DJs Geronamo, Krash Helmut and Matt Casio and performances by Conner Joseph McCready and Nick Brilla. Free. (Usmani) 6304 Fleet Ave., pretensiongallery.wix.com/pretensiongallery.
